The Commission and the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council are seeking public comment on the Summer Flounder, Scup, and Black Sea Bass Commercial/Recreational Allocation Amendment. The Council’s Public Hearing Document includes all proposed management options and was developed to solicit public comment, while the Commission’s Draft Amendment is a more comprehensive management document that will resemble the final amendment once approved. Both documents contain identical options for public input, but each have been developed according to each management body’s differing requirements. You need only to comment on one of the documents.

We value your input. To be most effective, we request that your comment include specific details as to why you support or oppose a particular alternative. Specifically, please address the following:

  • Which proposed alternative(s) do you support, and which do you oppose?
  • Why do you support or oppose the alternative(s)?
  • Is there any additional information you think should be considered?

Written comments may be submitted through March 16, 2021 by any of the following methods:

       3. MAIL or
